Will you come to Christ, dear brother,
Tho’ in sin you’ve strayed afar?
You will find there can no other
Save you now as you are.

In My Father’s house there’s room!
Will you come, admittance seeking,
Leave the world and its gloom?

Sinner, come, oh! come today;
Tarry not, in weakness falling,
He’ll sustain all the way!
